When they print them for us they print many at a time and they have a day, time, and seat listed, BUT you don't have to go during that printed date/time. Our tickets are special tickets that say "Good For Any 2019 Show." So pick the day you want to go, pick the time that works best for you, and sit where you would like to watch the circus. Most of all HAVE FUN!!!

A message from Coach Swagerty- I thought I'd share this with you. Most people don't understand the trust that goes along with being on OUR cheer team. Yes we are just a cheer team to others, yes we have times we are not a perfect team or perfect people, but one thing is for sure....we keep each other safe and call each other family. The team worked hard this year through football, basketball, wrestling, and competition. For my team it's like a second family because they are ALWAYS together and in tight quarters cheering and practicing, but like any team or family we will have some issues. This year thank God we only had a handful of issues to deal with and with having a great AD for support, the year went by quick. The team members that make it to the end of the year have truly worked hard. As their coach I would like to thank those who supported my team, stood up to cheer with them, and told them how well they have been doing. Your kind words are greatly appreciated! What we have left for this school year: One more rally left, tryouts for next year, and a performance in the Shrine Circus. Thank you to those that have donated or bought Shrine circus tickets to help support the Shrine Children's Hospitals. You still have time to help us by buying circus tickets or through donation! Have a great rest of the year! ~Coach Swagerty
